How to Wake up W/ out Monitors then Sleep 15 mins later

i am doing the same thing except, im telling it to wake up at a certain time at 3 am and sleep after 15 mins for backup, when my PC wakes up, is there a way i can disable the monitors or only have my computer tower wake up w/ out turning on my monitors ?

it a desktop and i don't want to see my monitors all night by my bed when it wakes up keeping me awake, is there a way i can do this or something alternative software or program maybe or is it not possible ??

don't be an idiot and say, turn off your monitors yourself by pressing the button, i want this to be automated
